Entering the Twilight Zone
There's this stereotypical goth girl who goes to my school; spikes, chains, black galore and I simply feel the need to report that she came to school today wearing bright red medical pants and a mens' rainbow coloured button down. Obviously she did it for the shock value, and I have to say it is a rather horrifying sight. I know everyone is going to notice but she's so darned hostile that I doubt anyone has the nerve to mention it. She's probably eat them alive and regurgitate their spine. Because regurgitation is what colour-confused goth chicks do best.
This kind of prompts me to think about Hot Topic. Even though I've never been to one in my life, nor have I ever seen one in Canada - I bet this girl would love to go there. Even though, to quote Matt Skiba, "prepackaged nonconformity" does bother me, I think Hot Topic gets a bad rap. It wouldn't be half as bad if 13 year olds hadn't ruined it by wearing their Hot Topic Ramones shirts. I don't mind a lot of the band shirts and creepy cartoon character things they sell there. In fact, I love cartoon characters even though I have a hard time pulling that kind of thing off. Anyways, all I'm trying to say is that you shouldn't indicriminately hate the place because it sells indicriminately to little posers. It's actually the little posers you should hate indiscriminately.
